PROBLEM:
I am the aquatics director at a busy community pool, whose programs range from day camps to swim team practice to open swim. We have a fixed mounted pool lift that is constantly in the way. It ties up a lane in the pool, and the day-camp kids use it as a jungle gym. Is there a better way to provide accessibility for our mobility-challenged members?

SOLUTION:
The PAL-Portable Aquatic Lift is a battery-powered fully portable lift.

This popular waterpark had a children's water play area that was dated and rusty and in need of a makeover. The park wanted to add new features without breaking up the pool base and keeping expenditure to a minimum.
